I'm sorry, but this was very bland. I was expecting it to be rich with the brie, but it was lacking in flavor. I think it's a really good base, but next time I would add garlic and use chicken broth for the entire liquid equivalent instead of water.

Quick and tasty! I used half milk/half heavy cream, and didn't blend the soup - I like 'em chunky ;) I found it a little peppery for my taste, but hubby still added pepper at the table. I liked it with the brie, but think next time I might try it with cream cheese as others have suggested. Good soup for a cold winter day!

Very good recipe. My only substitutions were a Hollandaise Chevre for the Brie (which I grated before adding), and extra regular onion for the green onion. I also cooled it few minutes before adding to the blender and left about one cup not blended for texture. My hubby loved it. I would like to tweak it a little toward my own taste but I think that was because my chicken broth came out a little too tart since I had no carrots the day I made it :(. Thank you for a solid, yummy recipe!

I made this soup last night and it was delicious. I didn't have the brie so I subsituted cream cheese. I did have cheddar but that wtih celery seemed strange to me. I doubled the recipe and added thyme instead of the marj.. and like another reviewer did add soem garlic. As with the brie the cream cheese didn't melt quite right and was "clumpy" so I just blended it again and it came out nice and smooth. FYI thought be careful when doing so I had an "eruption" :) from my blender and was told by a family member it was because the liquid was too high and too hot? Anyway thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe it was a great way to use up some celery I didn't want to go to wate. It had a wonderful taste of celery and was creamy mmm!!!

This soup is terrific! I have a Celery Soup recipe that I love, but decided to try this as I felt like something with a bit of cheese in it. I only had a sweet potato, so used that and otherwise stuck to the recipe as noted - and it was creamy and wonderful! I did have a hard time getting the brie to melt (might have been because it was a light kind) so I just blended it with my immersion blender. I think my old favorite has been replaced! :-)

It's nice to find a gluten-free cream soup! I added some fresh parsley before I pureed it and it added some brightness.

A new family favorite... even for my 9 year old son! You would never know it has celery because it's smooth and the brie cheese and potatoe gives it a smooth warm feeling. The white pepper is perfect, the heat builds as you eat it. Un-expectedly wonderful!!!
